On September 27, 2022, Governor Newsom signed into law Senate Bill No. 1162, which imposes new pay data disclosure and reporting requirements on California employers.
The law requires that an employer with 15 or more employees include the pay scale for a position in any job posting, whether the posting is internal or external. If such an employer engages a third party to announce, post, publish, or otherwise make known a job posting, the employer must provide the pay scale to the third party, and the third party must include the pay scale in the job posting. “Pay scale” has been previously defined in California Labor Code section 432.3 to mean a salary or hourly wage range, and does not include bonuses, equity, or other types of compensation.
The law requires that an employer, upon request, provide an employee the pay scale for the position in which the employee is currently employed.
The new pay scale disclosure requirements go into effect on January 1, 2023. The updated pay data reports are due starting May 10, 2023.
